Si Stephen Curry has three rings, has been a two-time MVP, is considered one of the best triplists in history (if not the best) and has changed basketball with his game because of his search for the perfect shot. The hits from the logo in the center of the court, from the changing room tunnel or from anywhere are the result of obsessive work.
He does it with Brandon Payne, his personal trainer, and borders on madness. Because in his sessions it is not enough to score the triples. That is not enough for a long time. “We decided to be more precise. We use a technology that measures the trajectory of the ball and if it does not enter exactly through the middle of the ring, we count it as a failure,” says the coach, who in his work sessions applies theories on neurocognitive efficiency.
This requirement when scoring a triple makes the margin of error greater in matches. If in a game, the Warriors point guard throws a slightly wide triple, there is still a chance that the ball will enter. His regular shots have a perfect trajectory and go in, but those who don’t can, too.
In practice, Curry usually shoots from 10 different points on the court. To keep changing, you need to write down eight of the 10 that you shoot. If not, you must repeat. And this combined with sprints that accelerate your pulse to simulate the conditions in which you will have to shoot in matches. Some methods that border on madness, but that have made the Warriors point guard a constant threat to his rivals.
